A Childish Problem

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

It’s no secret that as a nation we’re obsessed with our weight, but The Daily Mail reported today that eating problems among children are on the rise. More and more children are coming home with their lunch boxes still full and parents are at a loss as to why their little ones have become so food conscious. Bullying and hang-ups passed down from parents seem to to be the worst offenders.

Do you have a child who is worried about their weight? How have you dealt with it? We’d love to hear from you. Let’s hope this fad can be nipped in the bud, quickly.

The 6000 calorie diet

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

It’s always refreshing to see a woman who isn’t constantly worried about her weight – but reading about Britain’s fattest woman was heartbreaking. Here’s a person so addicted to food she can no longer leave her house – the last time she tried she broke the suspension on her husband’s car.

Brenda tucks away a massive 6000 calories a day, mostly consisting  of chocolates and fizzy drinks. She is hopeful she will be able to loose weight to start a family in the future.

Have you lost a dramatic amount of weight? Did you do it in an unusual way? Perhaps you tried but something stopped you. We’d love to hear your weight-related stories – they might even help someone like Brenda.

With temperatures still below zero it’s hard to think about squeezing ourselves into our summer-wear (eek!) –  but now’s the time to start a healthy weight-loss plan in time for warmer weather.

We’ve had some amazing stories from women who have beaten the gym boredom by trying something different – from trampolining to pole dancing! These women have shed stones and had fun doing it.

If you have an inspirational or unusual weight-loss story, we’d love to hear from you!
